we got this company to move "sofa,Fridge freezer and double bed along the corridor to another flat,their advert looks very professional with their van and two young fellas wearing Scotland rugby shirts,the truth is far from that,£50 minimum charge it says,we got two guys who ruined our new vinyl floor covering,by "walking" fridge/freezer instead of lifting it,after I told them not to walk it,they came one by bus and one cycling no gloves and no trolley,we only discovered when moving our sofa that they made holes in the bottom in the hessian to lift it,or maybe they thought they would find money in it it is an Ercol now ruined:mad: they took 40 minutes and charged me £100 and gave no receipt "cash in hand" they refuse to answer any emails,when I ring they hang up when I tell them my name,I asked if they were insured?
please do not pick on me for my grammar,I left school at fifteen and worked in the building trade for 55years ,

    While sorry to hear of your misfortune, I am puzzled why you paid them £100 cash if they ignored your instructions and ruined your floor.
